Inconnue Detective

Traduction de Sylvain Halgand

This Detective is manufactured with some very light wood covered with a decoration paper . This decoration, nearly 100 years after its installation, is languished and asks only one thing; from to go away elsewhere!! Result, the adhesive not being any more but one vagueness memory, paper does not float and made waves.
The poor quality of materials is not the only defect of this camera. The assembly is approximate. The two windows of the viewfinder, badly aligned, give an air of beaten dog to this ancestor, but for once, these finders are exceptionally clear.

The lens cap, out of strong paperboard, resembles milfoils. It is hung under the button which makes it possible to select the instantaneous one or the Time exposure. Under the lens, the swivelling selector of right-hand side moves, behind the lens, a plate on which lenses of different focal distances are. That of left, makes it possible to choose the opening. It is acted in fact of displacement of a part on which holes of different diameter are bored.

The button with the bottom of the front face is the selector speed (until the 1/100).

Nothing makes it possible to determine the nationality of this Detective.
